McEvoy At The Double

14 October 2014

On-loan Tottenham youngster Kenny McEvoy bagged a brace in a development fixture with Leyton Orient.

The Peterborough United development team beat Leyton Orient at the Nene Park Academy in the latest Final Third League fixture with on-loan Tottenham Hotspur youngster Kenny McEvoy bagging a brace.

McEvoy rifled home via the underside of the crossbar to give Posh the lead after good work from Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Erhun Oztumer and doubled the lead with a tap in from a yard after Harry Anderson's shot had struck the post.

McEvoy was denied a hat-trick by a fine save in the second half before substitute Jack Friend wrapped up the win with a calm finish with his right-foot midway through the second half.

Posh shot-stopper Dion Henry made two fine saves to preserve the clean sheet while Ollie Luto, Kane Ferdinand and Liam Marshall were all denied by the O's keeper.

Oztumer, Ferdinand, Santos and McEvoy all completed 90 minutes while Mendez-Laing played an hour. Under 16 James Goode was excellent at the heart of the Posh defence.

Orient included former Posh loanee Hogan Ephraim in their starting line-up.

Posh boss Darren Ferguson commented: 'It was an excellent performance. It should have been more than 3-0 if I am honest. There were some good displays and a few are in my thinking for the weekend.'

Posh: Henry, Luto, Santos, Goode, Ward, Anderson, Marshall, Ferdinand, Oztumer, Mendez-Laing (sub Friend 60min), McEvoy.
